Solar Eclipse High-Altitude Balloon Project
Our own Fleet Belknap (KJ4ZWA), and several of his engineering program
colleagues are planning to launch a balloon to capture live stream video, and other data, for the solar eclipse that will occur on 21 August 2017.
The balloon will be lifting equipment intended to send back APRS, VHF, digital, live stream video and other data using ATV.
The estimated funds needed to “get this project off the ground” are approximately $1650. If you would like to donate to this project, send your contributions to Fleet as follows:
Fleet Belknap, Project Coordinator
108 Pine Lane
Simpsonville, SC 29681
Make your checks payable to: Anthony Cuenca IEEE PSSB
(This ensures the project contributions are correctly tracked for tax and legal purposes.)
